Just like most tile saws, the Husky tile saw is a wet saw, which makes it extremely beneficial when it comes to working out on the job sites. However, a tile wet saw also means that water is being pumped through the system to keep the blade cool and prevent any extra damage to it. The water also prevents it from throwing around a lot of splinters and dust. This also helps with the precision and neatness of the cutting tile flooring.
The benefit of this tile cutter is that it does not just cut tile, but also works on other materials including marble and stone. However, depending on what you are during, there are times when your saw will need to be adjusted. When it comes to this, it’s very important to know how to do it efficiently and safely.
Of course, there are a number of different types of Husky tile saws around and they each have different mechanisms to change a component. This is why most of the time it’s best to read the instructions. However, instructions do get lost. Many of the Husky variety of tile saws do have a common way to changing out a component. The main differences will be the type of guards that you need to look for.
The first thing that you’ll need to do is take off the sliding tray from the rail and then turn it over. You will now be able to see a knob just underneath the right hand side; this needs to be loosened. The blades of the wet saws do extend back through the saw, so it’s very important to be careful and do this part slowly. You’ll need to adjust it so it’s at the right angle for a miter cut. You’ll then need to adjust the tray too.
From here, you’ll need to ensure that the knob for the miter cut is loosened. This will be right at the back of the tile saw. You will need to twist it so that the angle is the exact same as that of the tray’s angle. Your Husky tile saw will only be able to go up to a 45 degree cutting angle.
Now you can pop the tray back onto the rails and put the tile that you were cutting back on. You will need to adjust where the tile sits to ensure that it cuts exactly where you want to. You need to make sure that the water is still pumping through correctly and then slowly put the tray back into place.
